@Catsnlynne: I'm right there with ya.
The saddest part of the New 52 Hawkman series is that it really didn't get good until the Liefeld team came on board, but because it was Liefelds name attached I couldn't get people I knew to pick it up.
Having Liefeld do the cover art was probably even worse than attaching his name to the series.
A few good things came out of this series: the return of Katar Hol, and the re-invention of the Thanagarians as a race that once possessed wings.
It just makes so much more sense out of the Thanagarians using wings rather than more sleek anti-gravity devices.
I also love that Hawkmans Nth metal and wings are a part of him again as it was the best part about the last version of Katar we had.
I also love that with Katar back Carter Hall can be re-introduced over in the Earth-2 book, and minus all that messed up continuity!
Although it is sad that Hawkman was supposed to have had a superhero career before this series began and yet there has been no reference to it what so ever...
